This recipe takes some time to make but it is well worth the effort. This does not use any extra ingredients like bread crumbs or flour or anything. It is simple and tasty.
  Chicken pieces 1 Kilogram, medium sized pieces
  Red chilli powder 1 Teaspoon
  Turmeric powder 1 Teaspoon
  Ginger garlic paste 1 Teaspoon
  Chicken masala powder 1 Tablespoon
  Curd/Yogurt 1 Cup (16 tbs) (or 1 tablespoon- lime juice)
  Salt To Taste
  Oil 3 Tablespoon

1. In a bowl put all the spices, curd and salt. Mix well to a paste. Put the chicken pieces and mix to coat all the pieces well. Cover and let it sit for at least 1 hour.

2. In a frying pan, heat 1 tablespoon oil on medium heat. Once the oil is hot put the marinated chicken pieces carefully in it. Do not overcrowd the pan.
3. Cover the pan with a lid, reduce the heat to medium low and cook for at least 10 minutes. Flip the pieces, cover and continue to cook for another 6 minutes.
4. Remove the lid, increase the heat to medium and let it crisp up for around 5 minutes on each side or till the marinate begins to caramelize.
5. Transfer onto paper towel to drain off any excess oil. Repeat this with the rest of the pieces and add more oil to the pan if required.

6. Serve this fried chicken as appetizer or as main dish.

The left overs if any can be used to make sandwich or rolls.
Make sure the chicken is fully cooked, otherwise, increase the cooking time by a few more minutes.

I have grown up eating this chicken fry. It is one of my favorite recipes from my mother's kitchen. I have tried to compare many types of chicken fries with this but none turns out as soft and tasty as this one. The secret ingredient is the curd that makes the chicken very soft and in spite of frying the chicken, it retains the softness.
